Spent the day poking at Pylons 0.9.7rc2 as well as the new documentation site that came out with the release of Python 2.6 – some sweet stuff in there.
WebOb: The New Middleware Layer on 0.9.7, its Reference page, How WebOb is different and Ian Bicking’s Blog Post about it – Ian is one of those guys who is so smart it fills me with a jealous rage. I’ve already found a lot of useful stuff in WebOb that was missing or hard to do with the older Pylons middleware.
Base Pylons Documentation, AuthKit Cookbook, Roadmap to Pylons 1.0 – just some good links to pylonshq
Python modules I need to brush up on, or just links I used in the course of today’s work:
2.6 Documentation Index, shutil, xdrlib, functools – a lot of functional paradigm stuff moved here?, StringIO, tempfile – probably the best tempfile implementation by a programming language, ever, simpleJSON revved to 2.0.1, 2.6 ‘Standard Library’ Index
Mako – I’m not sure why there are so dang many Pythons template layers. In fact, Preppy is another one that I might use more in the future due to its integration with ReportLab’s PDF Toolkit
The Pylons Book – I’ve already pre-purchased, but wish it had more “nuts and bolts” based on what I’ve seen so far.
